America, You Are Not The World

America your head is so big
America your belly is so big
I LOVE you
but I wish you’d stay where you live

In America the land of the free they say
land of opportunity in a just and truthful way
where the president is never black female or gay
and until that day you’ve nothing to say to help me believe

In America you gave us the hamburger
America you know where you can shove your hamburger
don’t you wonder why in Estonia they say
hey you, yes you, you pig you big fat pig

Steely blue eyes with no love in them scan the world
and a humourless smile with no warmth within greets the world
while I who have nothing to offer you no no no no
but this heart deep and true you say you don’t need

See with your eyes feel with your hands, please
Hear with your ears know in your soul please
For haven’t you me with you now and I love you
America, I love you…

Apologies to the man for giving it the wrong title on “Burning Times”. Some Morrissey fans were outraged by my having the audacity to cover a song from “their” man.Some Americans were too but both Declan and I like to perform this as it allows us both to express our love for this beautiful country( but not for all of what goes on in it.)

Sorry no Chords at present.
